Willow Shaves Hair Onstage While Performing Reimagined Version Of “Whip My Hair”

If there’s one thing we’ve all come to love about Willow Smith, is that she marches to the beat of her own drum. Whether it comes to her hair, sense of style, music genre, or even her sexuality, she is not afraid of being different.

Nowadays, that’s what the world has come to expect from her- the unexpected. 

While many may still associate her music with her first single ”Whip My Hair”, Willow’s music has matured a whole deal since she was 9. And how better to remind the world of her growth than to perform a rock version of “Whip My Hair” and shave her hair while doing it.

The star had her hair shorn away while performing the 2010 hit song during a Facebook Live event to mark the release of her new album “lately I feel EVERYTHING”. Take a look at what may just be a perfect sight of punk poetry below.

Following her first single at 9, Willow has released solo, duet, and band albums since with neither album adhering to complacency to a specific genre.

Speaking to Alternative Press, Willow said, “I feel like in some cases genre can be helpful because it is historical, and the only reason why we’re seeing so much genre-mixing today is because it’s 2021 and so much has evolved,”.

“I feel like it’s really case by case, but overall, I’m all for getting rid of the categories and just doing whatever you feel. But sometimes when I’m conceptualizing things, I do need to know each different kind of genre that I’m going to be nodding to—like laying out a road map that’s specifically for me.”

In her latest project, “lately I feel EVERYTHING’, Willow takes on punk-rock, successfully getting the world excited about black artists doing rock again albeit of course being the originators.

Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, and Terra Whack are featured on the highly anticipated album.` Listen below;
